Story 1:  Want Free Restaurant Food Every Single Day? Here’s One Guy’s Smart But Unethical Life Hack to Get It

Restaurants love to give you free food on your birthday.  The problem is . . . your birthday only comes once a year.  And you’d probably like free food all the time.

A 19-year-old guy named Noah Wille just shared his trick on TikTok for getting free food all year long.  It’s smart . . . but also unethical . . . so you’ll have to decide if you’re willing to compromise your morals for some free Long John Silver’s.

Noah has an email address that he uses JUST to sign up for chain restaurant email lists.  And he lists a different birthday for each restaurant.

So on January 1st, Applebee’s thinks it’s his birthday and sends him a coupon for their birthday freebie, which is a free dessert, entrée, or appetizer.  On January 2nd, Arby’s thinks it’s his birthday and sends him a coupon for a free milkshake.  And so on.  He even uses a spreadsheet to keep it all straight.  

Noah says he gets 365 days worth of free food this way.

Story 2:  Fireball Is Going to Sell Eggnog This Christmas

Have you ever been doing Fireball shots and thought, “You know what?  This would taste even better if it was thick and milky?”

Fireball just announced they’re going to be selling EGGNOG this year.  It’s cinnamon-flavored, but it’s alcohol-free . . . so the package DOES recommend adding in some Fireball whiskey.

If you want to try Fireball’s take on eggnog, they’re selling it exclusively at Walmart this holiday season.

Story 3:  A Man Steals a Police Dog by Luring Him in with Vienna Sausages

Police dogs are extremely well-trained and disciplined.  But at the end of the day . . . they’re still dogs.

There’s a 26-year-old guy named Brandon Harmon in Smithfield, Kentucky.  And a few weeks ago, he managed to kidnap a POLICE DOG from a sheriff deputy’s yard.

How?  He lured the dog over to him with Vienna sausages.

The cops figured it out after they picked up Brandon for trespassing and he asked them if they knew what happened to their dog.  They said no . . . and he said he might have an idea.  It seems like he’s not a master criminal here.

Anyway, he’s been charged with theft.

  1. There’s a tale that a runner from Oregon named Forrest Smithson won the 110-meter hurdles at the 1908 Olympics while carrying a Bible in his hand.  But there aren’t any official reports that confirm it, and he may have just posed with the Bible in his hand AFTER the race. 
  1. Every British king or queen has a second birthday assigned to them if their real birthday isn’t in the summer . . . so there’s good weather for their birthday parade.
